POLL - Do you think Rawle Alkins will come back next year?
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:06:55 AM »


Do you think Rawle Alkins will come back next year?

This might sound like a silly poll question, but what if Rawle Alkins decides to come back for his Junior year? Nobody thought Allonzo Trier was coming back, but after missing a good portion of last season he decided it was best for him to come back. Wildcats fans can only hope Rawle would do the same. Vote on if you think Rawle will stay or go to the NBA.

IMO - it's way too early to tell, but we know he'll test the waters again. Lot's a variables :  how well does he recover and his numbers,  the leagues feedback, the strength of the draft at his position....

That answer has a lot of ifs to it.  When he went to the NBA combine after last season, he found out what he needs to improve on to be selected for the NBA.  He has probably worked on that a lot...could even be why he was playing pick up games when he broke his foot.  So, if he improved in all the areas he was supposed to then he's gone like the wind.  If he hasn't and gets injured again this season(I pray he doesn't) and can't finish with the improvements all showing he'll be back.  Personally I really hope he has the kind of season he's worked so hard for...even if that means he won't be with us afterwards. 

Bear Down Rawle!!

I would say he's definitely not coming back, unless he does.

I think he is one of those players that is going to go late 1st to mid 2nd round no matter when he leaves school.  So its really up to him on how long he wants to enjoy college.

I think Rawle would be more important to next year’s success than this year and would love to have him back. But barring any unfortunate events, his trajectory only has one way to go this year from here on out and he is gone. After testing the waters last year, if he doesn’t show he has made strides the remainder of this year then next year won’t make any difference either.

I am going to assume that Alkins stats remain constant from last season OR has gotten better.
Should he up his play AND we go further in the NCAA tournament like we all expect Arizona to, he is going to be one of three underclassmen that I am betting on leaving for the NBA after this season.

I could be devil's advocate and say that he will come back and be our #1 option with PJC/Ristic graduating and Trier/Ayton off to the NBA.
This would be his team by far and Miller SHOULD give him all the options to make plays like he did for N.Johnson, as I see them being in the same mold of offensive player, except Alkins would take it all the way while Johnson would pull up for a mid-range jumper.

When I first saw this post I was like Rawle's gone, but I checked NBAdraft.net and they have Rawle going as the first pick in the second round. It's gotta be because of his injury. I think UFC there's a chance he might not go in the 1st he'll come back to play his full junior year just like Trier. Fingers crossed that his injury was a blessing in disguise and we get Rawle for 1 more year. Thanks for giving me hope. Lol

I now believe if we don't have any type of sanctions (tournament ban) Rawle comes back.  Being that he was injured he didn't get a full year to show case his skills & Ayton & Trier are getting a lot of the points.  Next year it would be all about him & he would have a monster year & his draft stock would sky rocket.  If he comes back it would be HUGE for us!

If he comes back, it is a difference maker with the two elite commitments we currently have and basing that the remaining commitments will be average.  We have Williams/Randolph/Rawle/Lee/Jeter starting with Barcello/Smith/Akot/Shareef coming off the bench.  Besides hoping for Rawle let cross fingers that Randolph decides to stay for another year.

Exactly, we really need Randolph to stay at least another year. He's the one I'm worried since he's sort of taken the role we all thought Akot would have. If Akot, Rawle, & Randolph stay it'll help us get through the mass exodus of Ayton, Trier, PJC, & Ristic leaving. Crossing fingers!
